We Love Being Green

ImageX is proud to be a partner of the Bay Area Green Business Program.

About the Green Business Program

The Bay Area Green Business Program verifies that businesses meet our higher standards of environmental performance. Our partnership of government agencies and utilities helps local businesses comply with environmental regulations and take actions to conserve resources, prevent pollution, minimize waste, and reduce their carbon footprint. We offer businesses and agencies an easy-to-use framework for improving environmental performance. More than 2,200 businesses and public agencies have been certified since 1996.

The Association of Bay Area Governments coordinates the Program, which is implemented by Green Business Coordinators in the 9 participating counties. The regional and local programs are funded by Bay Area counties and their partners, including cities, regional and state agencies, utilities, special districts and nonprofit organizations.

The counties collaborate to develop regional standards that businesses must meet to qualify. These include complying with relevant regulations and implementing a specified number of measures to conserve energy and water, and prevent waste and pollution.

We strive for consistency. However, since regulations, conditions, priorities, and public services may vary, counties may increase above the regional standards the number and type of measures their local businesses must implement.
